Elon Musk Gives Remaining Twitter Employees a Harsh Ultimatum

Urging them to do “extremely hardcore” work.

In the last few weeks since Elon Musk has been owner of Twitter, he’s caused on uproar — both online with Twitter users as well as with staff. After firing nearly half of Twitter’s employees, resulting in getting rid of at least 3,700 jobs after one week of closing his deal, Musk has now given the remaining staff a new ultimatum if they want to keep their jobs.

The leaked memo titled “A Fork in the Road” reads as follows:

“Going forward, to build a breakthrough Twitter 2.0 and succeed in an increasingly competitive world, we will need to be extremely hardcore. This will mean working long hours at high intensity. Only exceptional performance will constitute a passing grade.

Twitter will also be much more engineering-driven. Design and product management will still be very important and report to me, but those writing great code will constitute the majority of our team and have the greatest sway. At its heart, Twitter is a software and servers company, so I think this makes sense.

If you are sure that you want to be part of the new Twitter, please click yes on the link below:

Anyone who has not done so by 5pm ET tomorrow (Thursday) will receive three months of severance.
Whatever decision you make, thank you for your efforts to make Twitter successful.
Elon”

The ultimatum comes after it was reported that Musk wants to introduce 84-hour weeks rather than the standard 40.
